The Philadelphia Flyers will take to the ice on Wednesday night to play their re-scheduled game against the Carolina Hurricanes. The decision to play Wednesday night at 6 p.m. seemed like a rather quick one, but in actuality it was a bit of a fight between the two teams’ front offices to make that situation. The Flyers won that fight, and they hope to do the same on the ice on Wednesday. They’ll also hope that top liner Jakub Voracek will be on the ice with them.
The Flyers have been oddly secretive about the finger injury that Voracek sustained in their game against the New York Islanders on Monday. As of right now, there are no new updates about the state of his injury other than that he is still day-to-day.
Voracek is a pretty resilient player that just might play through a minor injury as he can tape up his finger and still play with it like that since as far as we know his entire hand is not injured. With the team being so mysterious about his injury and not letting the player talk about it, it very unclear just how serious the injury is.
As of right now, Voracek may be listed as day-to-day but if he gets added into the lineup against the Hurricanes it will be a game-time decision. The extra day to rest and heal may be just what he needed, so there is a good chance that he could face off against the Hurricanes on Wednesday.
